Surgeon B only recommended a microdisectomy at L5-S1 Level vs laminectomy. Are there certain scenarios with a herniated disk where a laminectomy is preferable than removal of disk? Or am I just getting lost in the nomenclature as there will be a laminotomy with a microdisectomy?
To be clear surgeon B did not think I was a fusion candidate at L5/s1 level.
